This time my make for Christmas Thru The Year is a keeper...
I'll display it on one of my brothers hangers... it just needs a little holly for the frame top.
The embroidery pattern is one of Gail Pan's that I received at Christmas in July in Albury.
I used DMC floss - red # 815  &  green # 936 for the embroidery in this 12inch MiNi.

A-N-D  it's only 96 sleeps until the JoLLy MaN comes a-calling...
To visit Anthea... and all the other elves...just CLICK... HERE.   Thank You Anthea!

And last night was Friday Night Sew In... with Wendy...over HERE.

I sat & did a little embroidery by hand... enjoyable

Then I stitched a small item by machine... quick

I used this pattern...
And yes I've made several lately BUT I needed one more for a Xmas gift.

All in all... a very productive night.
Thanks Wendy...

FiNisHed THis WeeK

A PLaY/ CoT QuiLT for DD2 friend was completed during the week. It has lovely soft flannel on the back & I left it squishy & cuddly with only minimal quilting. DD2 is very HaPPy with it so fingers crossed her friend is too. The new baby is due in December.

This quilt was adapted from Noah & Friends quilt pattern by Kookaburra Cottage 2008
& the quilt measures 40 inch x 54 inch

I also made a siggy friendship block this week & mailed it off..

And I just LoVeD this pic when I saw it...

Unfortunately my little GS shared his tonsillitis with me... getting better now though.
